EX-FELONS CAN VOTE! SPREAD THE WORD...like now!
This is serious, people. Because if you let McCain in, I'm out! I'll be blogging from the Southern tip of Wales. Keep on thinking this is a joke. And PLEASE don't fake like you don't have a crazy uncle Remus that's been locked up...this is not that kind of blog.
The law stating that Ex-Felons can't vote has been disenfranchising Brown and Black people for the better part of this century. What they're saying is: YES we snatch you off the street as soon as look at you and YES we pass out sentences like Jolly Ranchers, And YES we humiliate you in prison, and YES we make it impossible for you to get a job when you get out...but by taking away your right to vote they're saying YOU CANT DO JACK ABOUT IT!
Some of your politicians have been fighting to get rights for ex-felons...that could mean Tens of Thousands of potential voters for Obama. So let your bank robbing Uncle Ro-Ro know: The time is now. We only have a few short days to register.
Thanks to Thanks to The Liberator magazine, UptownLife.Net, Around the Way Girls , T.K. Borsay, Tish Brown, Rashida Harris, D.J. Laylo, and anyone else I'm forgetting for the help spreading the word.
October 8th is the deadline to register.
